In a move that has unfortunately been a long time coming, Young Justice and Green Lantern the Animated Series are not going to be renewed. There has been quite a bit of turmoil with both shows as their scheduling has been interrupted and their role on Cartoon Network has constantly been in question. Newsarama reports that producer Giancarlo Volpe had known Green Lantern was coming to an end back in October of last year.
“This time we knew. They just didn’t want us to announce it publicly until they did,” he said via Twitter. The shows will run until their final episode concludes. In the wake, Cartoon Network will focus on the Teen Titans reboot and the new CG Beware the Batman shows.
This is pretty bitter news as both series never really seemed to take off while being decent takes on characters not really used in the DC animated Universe. I know Young Justice stumbled a bit, but it turned in to a show that had a bit of heart while Green Lantern wasn’t too shabby from the movie and the episodes I had seen.
